POINTERS ON FINDING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design company presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can not refund the time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be evaluated by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature real world samples odds are they won’t be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s goal is to mirror your personal vision for your company. If a designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they can get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Every new North Ridgeville company understands that they probably need a logo, however few start-ups fully realize the essential role their company logo can make in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo functions far better than another. A business logo has an instant and sustaining impact on the growth of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help North Ridgeville companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require contemplation, they can be understood in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel right, and they are suitable for the item or organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s both a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the act of marking something so that it could be recognized, its foundation originates from the mark branded onto livestock. These days a brand indicates pretty much anything with an objective, regardless if it be earnings or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the worth of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy cousin, they are both from the same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to produce an image that the target market will likely identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Lamborghini or Mustang what we consider is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can deliver us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people buy those brands. Brand image is why people identify with specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the origin of most branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded marketing agencies. When somebody says they are in advertising and marketing most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. However when somebody claims “I’m in branding”… it just seems more impressive, perhaps it’s due to the fact that many people do not understand what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual components of a product or agency that influence understandings. This largely includes the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized but can additionally consist of sound, lighting, texture, signs, just about anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps form the image of a company, a product or a business. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some identity designers also design sites and user interfaces. The crucial duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, results and assumptions.

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a North Ridgeville coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an older section of the area and wanted to visualize a retro vibe without appearing as boring or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks via developing a symbol design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria made for North Ridgeville medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the clinical evaluation of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I recollect where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that makes it more appealing, more attention grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping green frog developed for a family fun center in North Ridgeville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for North Ridgeville traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the images they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo by employing the positive space in the design to say one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  North Ridgeville logo but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 North Ridgeville logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I truly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial opinions on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to include every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo design realize how essential a logo design is for their company so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo job possesses it’s share of hurdles, but the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, design for North Ridgeville book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most necessary part of a published book because it is in most cases the primary thing a person views in the book store. With regard to a publisher, it’s the opportunity that they will ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo created for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with the bars modified to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it seems like that in many instances one of the things folks tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a spirit of airline flight and it was certainly a winner.

 North Ridgeville logo design made use of for marketing as well as a label style for Vintage Instance features an archaic font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo developed for an orthodontist in North Ridgeville, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs because it seems that almost every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

I really love doing dentist business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain how people should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout created for a North Ridgeville hair style workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo which communicated a sense of relaxation and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious path of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is usually the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the importance on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian steed logo layout created for a steed ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian program horses.

Logo design for a software program designer the design features as well as legendary North Ridgeville aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a company logo is just as important as how it brands the company it represents.

Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their North Ridgeville logo design utilizing an image that pulls in the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Good in that it grants a designer the flexibility to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo made for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font that is evocative a renowned North Ridgeville sports team logo design.

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked directly with the proprietor to create a logo design that worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
